The company was based in Ypres, Flanders, in what was then called the Flanders Language Valley (mimicking the Silicon Valley). Contents 1 History 2 References 3 See also 4 External links History Lernout & Hauspie was founded in 1987 by Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie. After a difficult start, it quickly grew, and, in 1995, it went public on the NASDAQ (LHSP), and was also quoted on the now-defunct Brussels-based EASDAQ exchange. Its headquarters were in Ieper, Belgium, and in Burlington, Massachusetts. At its peak, Lernout & Hauspie had a market capitalization of almost US$10 billion. Flanders played an important role in investing in the company and the surrounding Flanders Language Valley. Lernout & Hauspie quickly became Flanders pride. It acquired a number of its smaller competitors, including text-to-speech developer Berkeley Speech Technologies, in 1996. During March-April 2000 Lernout & Hauspie acquired Dictaphone for nearly US$1 billion, then acquired Dragon Systems shortly thereafter. Lernout & Hauspie provided the voice recognition technology needed to propel Dictaphones voice recognition enhanced transcription system (started by a company called Articulate Systems and sold and supported by a company called The MRC Group - later Fonix before becoming part of L&H).[1] For some time Lernout & Hauspie was dogged by rumours of financial impropriety, and in early 1999 the Wall Street Journal, ran allegations in its Heard on the Street column, by Goldman Sachs analyst Robert Smithson, that earnings had been overstated. Further investigation by Wall Street Journal staffer Jesse Eisinger led to the revelation on 8 August 2000 of a major financial scandal involving fictitious transactions in Korea and improper accounting methodologies elsewhere. In April 2001 founders Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie, as well as former CEO Gaston Bastiaens, were arrested in what is considered one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lernout_%26_Hauspie Page 1 of 3
    • Morgenthaler Ventures Former Siri board member: Shes not a data hog by Josh Lowensohn January 30, 2012 2:28 PM PST Summary: Someone from Siris past has come out in defense of the software voice assistants alleged data hogging ways, saying each query is about 63 kilobytes of data. Reports of Siris bandwidth hogging ways have been greatly exaggerated, according to a former board member of the namesake company Apple bought in 2010. In a guest post on Forbes this morning, former Siri and Nuance Communications board member Gary Morgenthaler suggests that the research report put out earlier this month by mobile network management company Arieso--the one that claimed the voice assistant feature led to about twice the amount of data use--is untrue. "Siris average data consumed per query is less than 63 kilobytes, according to Ars Technica; and its a number I can confirm, having Siri: Not such a data hog after all? served as a Siri board member for years," Morgenthaler wrote. "63 (Credit: Apple) kilobytes by the way, relative to iCloud, YouTube, Pandora and others, is de minimus," he added. That Ars Technica mention is the investigation the outlet did shortly after theiPhone 4S was released, testing a bevy of queries on Siri to see how much data the feature used. The conclusion was that the average query slurped up 63 kilobytes of data, with some actions like visiting a Web page, or pulling up a map then adding data on top of that, since those are separate applications and have data needs of their own. Ariesos study made waves this month when it suggested thatiPhone 4S users were bigger data users than those on the iPhone 4 due to Siri, an iPhone 4S-specific feature that runs through Apples servers and sends snippets of voice data for processing. Ariesos study took data from more than 1 million subscribers on a European cellular network shortly after the feature made its debut. The study surfaced once again last week in a story in The Washington Post titled "How Siri is ruining your cellphone service." The report suggested that the influx of data hogs on each carriers cellular network would eventually congest and deteriorate service, leading to dropped calls and slower data speeds. Morgenthaler added some additional anecdotal evidence of his own to malign the Arieso report, saying the feature itself was not creating a noticeable influx of new traffic. "I spoke with the CTO of a major European mobile telecommunications carrier who confirmed to me that, based on detailed analysis of mobile data traffic on their network, Siris contribution to the increase was negligible," Morgenthaler said. Apple, for its part, has kept its mouth shut on the claims by either party. The company did not respond to a request for comment on Morgenthalers defense of the feature.

By SCOTT BARANCIK © St. Petersburg Times, published October 15, 2000• whys everything happening to me? TAMPA -- After negotiating sweet deals with dozens of job-hungry towns around the world, Sykes Enterprises Inc.s plan to build a call center in rural Lake City may have seemed like a sure thing. Lake City officials scraped and borrowed to come up with the $5.6-million package Sykes demanded.• Incentives included free land, new access roads, a five-year break on property taxes and millions in cash. crosses my mind... seems almost... But when Tampa-based Sykes later asked for another quarter-million dollars in improvements, exasperated local officials balked. Enter Service Zone Inc., a company founded last year by ex-Sykes executive Timothy Hayes. The Homosassa Springs company offered to build Lake City a call center in exchange for a relatively slim $4.1- million. Unlike Sykes, the company also pledged to fill a certain minimum number of jobs, or else repay up to $1.8-million of the towns cash. Lake City leapt at the chance. The call centers foundation was poured last week. "Service Zone and (Columbia) county officials may owe Sykes a hearty "thank you, " the LAKE CITY REPORTER wrote in a June editorial. "Service Zone because Sykes makes them look good, and the county because Sykes got them ready to make a deal." Sykes moved on, eventually striking a multimillion dollar deal with Palatka instead. But the Lake City episode suggests the 23-year-old companys problems run deep. Over the past two years, Sykes Enterprises repeatedly has promised strong earnings, only to fall short. Clients have been stolen. Efforts to move into higher-profit areas such as software sales or e-commerce consulting have met with skepticism. Critics say founder John Sykes has been too busy trying to bring the 2012 Olympics to Tampa and cutting ribbons at local charities to pay close attention to the companys recovery.
